When I was a kid, sometimes my folks would drop me off at Gramma's for the night while they went out. It wouldn't be long after they drove off that I'd be pestering Gramma to get someone over to the house for me to play with; and nine times out of ten it would be my cousin Audrey. Fast forward 40 some years, and I'm still hanging out overnight with Audrey - usually at a quilt retreat but this weekend I stayed at her house.
When we plan these kinds of weekends, we are power sewing and talking with hardly a lull in the action. We don't have time to figure out complicated quilt instructions or fussing because the directions are wrong. This weekend we worked on Schnibbles patterns by Carrie of Miss Rosie's Quilt Company. This is my take on Tiny Town which is a knock-off of Carrie's pattern Full House. The fabrics are from two charm packs of Blueberry Crumb Cake by Blackbird Designs.
Let me add this. I had a question on the directions for Tiny Town, so I emailed Carrie. She was prompt in getting back to me to help me figure out what was confusing me. I appreciate the fact that she takes the time to read and respond to an email. I can't say enough good about Carrie or her patterns. Here is the link for Tiny Town.
This is Lincoln from the book Another Bite of Schnibbles. Talk about quick and easy! I love how these patterns work up like this. The fabrics I used were two charm packs of Clermont Farms by Minnick and Simpson.
We took a couple hours off for a quick run to Audrey's mom's house to eat freshly-baked cookies with her before a quick stop at the quilt shop and to pick up take-out Chinese for supper while we watched The Help.
Talk about a great relaxing weekend! We sewed up a storm and ate way too much junk - a perfect combination for a great time. Audrey will be posting pictures of her projects over at Four Houses Down. Thanks, Audrey, for a great weekend!
